We have 3 children ages 11, 10 and 7 and we stay for 2 weeks as we found 1 week just wasn't long enough. We have booked our 4th summer here for another 2 weeks in July/August 2010...we love it!
What we love most about this property site is the privacy and cleanliness. The owners keep the grounds, as well as the cottages, in excellent, clean condition. The owners are friendly and always there on site if you have a problem or have questions about where to go or what to see. They have become like family to us.
We find our cottage to be spacious, clean, amenable, comfortable and just like home! The kitchen is fully equipped and the appliances are in excellent working condition. The kitchenware is clean and modern. You only have to bring your food! There is lots of clean cabinet space to store your food as well as closet space and bathroom space to store whatever you feel the need to bring.
The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen size mattress where my husband and I sleep. The living room has a very comfortable pull out sofa where our three children sleep. The bathroom is modern! There is a ceiling fan in every room which keeps the cottage comfortable day and night.
We love eating out on the patio and cooking on the gas grill. There is plenty of chairs and room for a few "invited" guests to come for lunch too! The view is simply breathtaking and it's so quiet.
We are also attracted to the sandy, private beach which is on site. The sand is soft and there is a large enough area that the children can build sand castles while the adults soak up the sun in lawn chairs. The water is shallow and gradually gets deeper but is under 5 feet for hundreds of feet out. It's great for the children. We also rent the owners' kayaks. The children have found a place to kayak out and pick enough blueberries to make a pie! There is even a large, famous sand dune to which you could walk or kayak.
There are laundromats close by as well as a Market Basket with reasonable prices to do grocery shopping. There are also other types of stores close by if you run out of something as well as brand name outlets in Tilton.
We have also rented a pontoon boat from the Marina which is right on the lake and docked it onsite. There is a wonderful seafood place in walking or boating distance too!
We would recommend this rental property to anyone and once you stay, you won't want to leave. It is "kid friendly"!
Thank you Doreen and Barbara for a nice rental.
